Care Ministries (incorporating the Ageing)
Care Ministries’ vision is to support and encourage Christian care, in all its forms, in our congregations and in Lutheran Aged Care and Community Services.
How we serve
The Committee for Care Ministries (incorporating the Ageing) – formerly Committee for Ministry with the Ageing – is a committee of the LCA Council for Local Mission. It acts as an advisory body that:
- provides advice on ageing-related matters and ministry with the ageing
- provides advice on community care related matters and ministry with vulnerable members of our community
- promotes the Lutheran ethos of aged care and community services
- facilitates the development and promote the use of relevant resources
- consults and facilitates communication with Lutheran agencies engaged in this ministry.
